Genesis Growth Equity Fund I (GGEF I), a private equity fund focusing on investments into small and mid-size growth companies primarily in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, successfully completed an acquisition of a majority stake in R2B2.
For spring 2020, R2B2 has put together packages for buying high-visibility banners and native ads. The packages have been made based on thorough metrics and ensure that the ads are displayed in the most visible positions. This even applies to native ads, whose metrics are new.
The revenue per unit on internet ad placements sold at auction during high season has risen by more than 50%. The dramatic growth in performance has impacted both large and specialized publishers. The auctioning of ad space is receiving strong support from publishers.
R2B2 has integrated two more programmatic ad platforms, PubMatic and Ströer. The company now connects to 13 programmatic networks and mediates demands for new ads with the participating partners.
Interscroller was introduced by R2B2 at the end of June 2018. After only five months, the number of impressions sold has already soared past Mobile Skins, which was previously the best selling mobile format.
R2B2 offers advertisers 4 billion impressions a month on Czech and Slovak websites. On HbbTV, 300 million impressions a month are available.
